Paper Abstract

Measurement of the refractive index of regular shaped glass by speckle correlation is reported. One intensity image in the diffraction field of a speckle-illuminated sample is captured by a CCD before the presence of glass sample and another intensity image is captured after the presence of glass sample. As the position of peak correlation coefficient is quantitatively related to the change in optical path length arising due to the presence of glass, the refractive index of the glass can be evaluated by the correlation of the intensity images before and after the glass insertion. The theoretical correlation function is first derived that describes the relationship between optical path length change and speckle decorrelation. In experiment, various regular shaped glasses are measured to demonstrate the accuracy and robustness of the proposed technique.
